I have been tempted to get one. It looks sweet.

I hope the 52fs's are enough, will try them first.
Otherwise I have a pair of ASP FS 80'S.

It seems to be built light.
And its obviously not a super scale plane, but built for ease of use and more fun...... But I will try and add a little detail. The missing oil coolers in the wing roots really has to be addressed.

It arrived today.

I must say.....im am at first quite disapointed with it.
It is not clear coated like all the pics that I have seen and that makes it look a bit toy llike........

The box was in great condition, but my canopy is broken in two parts......will contact lindinger where I bought it and ask for a replacement.......at least it is broken in the frame, so it could be glued together again making it almost good again if I cant get a replacement.

On the plus side is that is built very well, and does look good overall.

will probalby have to get some 2K mat clear and spray it myself......because I simply hate the shine on it. Jut not an easy task when you live in a small apartment.

Just contacted Seagull via facebook, and they replied very fast.

Apparently the distributers can order it in mat or gloss finish........and Lindinger in austria ordered it in gloss......without stating it in their webpage.
Had I known this, I would have ordered it from another shop

Well, i have recieved the 2k mat clear so I can move on. I have also glued the canopy together as a spare. Lindinger in Austria has sent a new canopy to me.... Its in the mail.
I have glued and screwed on the engine/gear mounts and fuel proofed them with black paint. .... But it was probably a waste of time, as it will be sprayed with 2k varnish anyway.

Just have to iron out the creases in the oracover, and apply the decals before it gets clear coated......hope I dont mess up.
